(Alliance News) - Germany's vaccine commission has now recommended the AstraZeneca PLC/Oxford Covid-19 vaccine for people over the age of 65, the health ministry said Thursday. 

"The vaccine commission now recommends the AstraZeneca vaccine for people over 65 as well. This is good news for older people who are waiting for a jab," said Health Minister Jens Spahn. 

Germany had previously said it lacked sufficient data to greenlight the vaccine for older people, but has changed its position following recent studies.

Shares in AstraZeneca were up 0.4% at 6,823.14 pence in London on Thursday.
